No Matter What, Keep Moving.

IMG_1931

Normally we are moving at a good pace through life.  Accomplishing things at will and with good intentions.  But some days we get caught in quicksand and can’t progress at all.

Obstacles, which we know how to deal with, can stop us temporarily.  They force us to relook our plan and find new ways around, over, or through them.  The key is to keep moving.

My wife has been working out for a couple months and I am very proud of her.  One of her goals is to start doing 5Ks and she sticks to her running plan.  In the evenings, we go to the local high school track and she gets her mileage in.

Even when she stops to talk to her little girls her feet are still moving. Still staying in constant motion.  Granted she is not moving, but in essence she is moving.  Get it? Her feet are still moving and her mind is still turning.  Her goal is till firmly planted in her mind and she knows that she is going to accomplish it.

No matter what we come up against in life we have to continue moving.  We want to ideally keep moving forward.  We may have to go left or right for an unspecified amount of time, but we have to keep moving with our goal still in the forefront of our mind.

Do me a favor, take the next 51 seconds to watch the below video.  I think after watch you will be ready and energized to keep moving forward.

    So motivational! Sometimes it’s hard to remember to just keep pushing through, but when you do-it works out so much better!

    I’m exactly at that point where there’s this huge block of uncertainty infront of me and I’m just so exhausted to move it. You are right though, I just need to keep my feet moving. 🙂 Special thanks to your wife 😉

    Great metaphor! And it’s cool to think that when we walk or run it’s still one step at a time and that reaching our goals is continuing to keep taking those individual steps. It’s the only way to get to the end goal. So insightful to say that even when she “stops” she’s still moving, which is such great advice for anyone striving toward a goal. There will be times you feel stopped, but you can decide to keep moving.

      So right. I think mothers are the greatest source of inspiration. No matter what happens they are continuously moving and making things happen for their family. 🙂
